IIRC I spent about $40 on dinner for those gents. Money very well spent. All three appreciated it and I felt like a million bucks when a full Colonel dropped me at CQ w/ a request to see my CO. I got an ataboy for my efforts that day. The Luftwaffe pilot had been in the Austrian AF prior to Hitler absorbing Austria... flew ME110's through the entire war... only daylight ops against the US was Schweinfert when anything that flew went after our boys. It was a window into a time of legends. The stories I listened to taught me we follow in the path of MEN, on par w/ those that fought 1860-65. It also taught me that evil existed on a scale fiction cannot imagine. Thank God in heaven we won.
